Dear African Child

We Know You

You are the son, daughter of the soil
Rich in texture and content
Full of potential for a better tomorrow

Born with a skin the colour of chocolate
Bright, brilliant and articulate
Strong and bold; you're gifted
Talented enough to be the best

We Are You

We are the new generation
Not afraid to be us
Uniquely made, jovial and talented
Shining like the stars we are
We are the children of Africa
Making the best of us
Yes! I am an African child

We Got You

We will give you the gift of a lifetime;
A dream, a door of opportunity;
You will thrive. We promise

It won't be easy,

 but for either opted route
nothing ought to be straight, making everything right, needs a little bit of fight
